The Israel Defense Forces says it carried out dozens of airstrikes in the Gaza Strip overnight, including against Hamas tunnels, command centers, weapons storage sites, and mortar and anti-tank missile launch sites.

The IDF says the strikes also targeted war rooms, infrastructure and command centers belonging to Hamas’s so-called emergency operational apparatus.

According to the IDF, Hamas’s emergency operational apparatus is responsible for setting up blockades preventing Palestinians from evacuating from northern Gaza to its south.

The IDF has been warning Gazans to leave the northern part of the Strip.
